Mumbai Indians are coming off from an Morale Boosting win against KKR Defending 31 Runs in last 30 balls .
David Warner form will be the only positive thing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad taking from the previous Encounter against Royal Challengers Bangalore where they collapse Drastically in the run Chase.
Both Teams have Quality Bowling Attack with presence of International Bowlers like Bumrah, Boult , Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar .
This IPL 2021 has mostly been low scoring Encounters till now but its also not easy for the Teams to chase down Mid Totals due to slow Pitches and some quality Bowling. Mumbai Indians havent played their Best Cricket soo far With dramatic batting collapses but still got 2 valuable points from their 2 games courtesy of their bowlers. Rohit Sharma and Quinton De kock will start the proceedings for the Indians with Suryakumar Yadav Coming at 3 followed by Ishan Kishan. Pandya Brothers and Pollard are the Finishers for the side. Bowling looks totally balanced with Bumrah and Boult taking the new ball along side Newly included Marco Jensen. Rahul Chahar was the Match winner in the previous game bagging 4 wickets. Krunal Pandya was also very Economical.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have lots to issues to sort out in the initial phase of the Tournament with still looking for their first point in the Point Table. David Warner showed his class in the previous game scoring a Quickfire Half Century but this knock was in vain as Hyderabad Lost that Match. Manish Pandey is also among runs but his strike rate has been in question from last 2 match. Jonny Bairstow failed in the previous match but has the capability to win matches on its own. Holder is a Good inclusion for the side due to his All Round Ability. Bowling of SRH is also good with Qualty of Bhuvneshwar Kumar at the Top with Sandeep Sharma. Rashid Khan is the Ace of the Bowling Attack due to his wicket taking abilities and also is very economical.
The conditions in Chennai have been quite tough for the batsmen. The new ball has been the best time to bat against and the spinners have held sway after that. The death overs used to be where the batting side would attack the most but that has proven to be very difficult indeed. Anything around 150-160 will be competitive on this wicket.
The toss is going to be very interesting. Teams have had a tough time chasing in Chennai and we think they may start opting to bat first from here on in. The dew that was expected to even things out has not yet turned up and the ball becomes very difficult to hit after it becomes a bit old.
